Ms. Pierre’s Classroom Edit display name

  • Norland Elementary School
  • Miami Gardens, FL
  • Nearly all students from low‑income households

My students range from a low economic to middle income families who are mostly African American and some Hispanic. For the most part they are good children and behave in class. They have not been exposed to cultural enrichment and hands-on creative activities in their young life. They want to learn but need to be motivated and given the confidence to try to go a bit further in their creative exploration rather than giving up and saying "I'm done"! I would like to expose them to many ideas, art techniques, varying media and educate them on how to use the many different tools in art class. Some of my students don't know the difference from a crayon to an oil pastel. I try to have them experience all types of medium so that they become more accustomed to knowing about them and using them. With the age of electronic devices my children don't enjoy the process of just sitting and drawing and coloring an object or a thought that comes in their heads. No matter what these students can learn.
